DESCRIPTION OF DAILY EVENTS

** These support groups offered at the Senior Center provided by KBBH

Body Recall:  A lower intensity program of physical fitness, designed to reclaim the natural motion of the body and the strength to help make life pleasurable. This class emphasizes the essential development of full range of movement in all joints and muscles.  This class is offered at the Senior Center by community members, Jack & Mary Noller.

Circle of Friends: A support group for clients of Klamath Basin Behavior Health who come together weekly for crafts, presentations, and to make friends.  You will need to reach out to KBBH to determine if you are eligible.

CRAFT Connection Corner: Free weekly opportunity to engage in conversation, brainstorming, show & tell of projects, and more. Craft topics that have been discussed are potholders and other kitchen wares, crocheting, macramé, knitting, paper beads, and dolls. No experience with crafts needed, only a desire to connect!   

Qi GONG: Pronounced “chee gong,” involves exercises to optimize energy within the body, mind, and spirit, with the goal of improving and maintaining health and well-being.  This class can be done in seated or standing.

SAIL: Stay Active & Independent for Life is an evidence-based class that includes aerobics, strength, balance and education.  This class can be done in seated or standing, with or without equipment.  This class is delivered at a moderate to high intensity.

Tai Chi:  Originally developed for self-defense, tai chi has evolved into a graceful form of exercise for stress reduction, strength, and balance. Described as meditation in motion, tai chi promotes serenity through gentle, flowing movements.

WATERCOLOR: Weekly art class offered by local artist, Kat Benson, entitled “Watercolor For The Fun Of It,” encouraging all to come together, have fun, and create.
